Troopers Warn of Sobriety Checkpoints in ChesCo

EMBREEVILLE PA – Don’t say you weren’t forewarned.

Pennsylvania State Police from the Troop J Barracks in Embreeville, whose patrols often cover parts of northern Chester County, have announced their intent to conduct “at least one” and possibly more sobriety checkpoints between Thursday (July 28, 2022) and Aug. 4 (Thursday) “on Chester County roadways.”

Their goal, troopers said, was to “reduce the number of traffic fatalities and injuries cause by alcohol- and drug-related crashes. The also hope to trim “the number of DUI incidents in the Commonwealth,” troopers added.

Just where will the checkpoints occur, on which day or days, or at what time? Those are the secrets troopers are keeping to themselves.
